Got the new car stereo today. Sony single cd, tuner, w/ a front aux port. Put the speakers in Sun. Decided to go adjacent to the control panel instead of below. Used the spreaker covers that came w/ but hope to find something that blends in better. So, took stereo and elec tools out to the trailer and hooked up some temp connections to see whats what. I had pulled the control panel and seperated the original wiring harness. After looking at the wiring diagram, located the 12v
+ and - leads. Clipped my alligator clips to corresponding wires. Buzzzz was all I got. No lights or any sign of life from the stereo unit. Remembered I had the univolt plugged in and after unplugging shore power and reattaching wires she fired right up. Sounds great! but what gives w/ the 12v
when attaced to shore power? Should I pull power off a different lead? We always boondock but would like to understand whats going on bfore making permanant connections. Also, was going to put another 12v
outlet in line w/ the acc wire to charge the ipod or whatever. Any insight would be appreciated.
